Computer Numerical Control: Concepts & Programming


Computer Numerical Control: Concepts & Programming Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in a newly updated and expanded fourth edition, our most popular CNC programming text continues to provide readers with an excellent foundation in programming codes and syntax. Programs represented in the book are not as complex as those found in Industry. However, they have been deliberately engineered to provide readers with demonstrations of basic concepts of CNC programming that they can learn from and apply to a variety of industrial situations. Comprehensive in scope, the book features detailed discussion of two-axis and three-axis programming, basic trigonometry, and advanced CNC concepts such as mirror imagery, polar rotation, and helical interpolation. A comprehensive glossary is also included for the benefit of readers who may be new to the CNC programming world.

Book News Annotation:

Since its invention in 1947, the use of three-axis curvature data for the control of machine tool motion for use in manufacturing has become widely used throughout industry. This text offers a guide to use of programming codes and syntax used by computers to aid numerical control machinery. While the programs demonstrated in the text are not as complex as the ones used in industry, they have been written to demonstrate the basic concepts of numerical control. Chapters discuss process planning and tool selection, tool changing and tool registers, two- and three-axis programming and other basic and advanced components of computer numerical control. The CD-ROM contains the sample programs that are provided in specific chapters, as well as web links to a few CAD/CAM companies that supply CAM modules and code verification software.
